Q.

MMR Vaccine given seperately

I want to give the MMR vaccine seperatley. Does anyone know where to source the vaccines seperately? I know the state offers the measels vaccine so would only need the mumps and rubella separetely. where can you obtain these from?

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

This can be done but it will be difficult to obtain the two separate vaccines that you need [rubella and the mumps vaccines]. Speak to your paediatrician or contact one of the main suppliers of vaccines here, Sanofi-Pasteur South Africa.
